Roxette best new sound album
L. Verna | Buenos Aires, ARG | 02/03/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With "Joyride" album, "Have a Nice Day" is one of the best albums from the swedish duo Roxette.
They allow themselves to try with new sounds, more up to date, without losing their basis.
Songs like "Stars", "7twenty7" or "Crush on you" show this new sound. Even many ballads like "Wish i could fly", "Salvation" or "I was so lucky" have some kind of state-of-the-art sound.
Singles choice may be not the best for a good promotion of this album; but for sure if you like pop music, you'll enjoy this piece.
Roxette rocks yet! This album made me a fan!

"Two ears are barely enough to appreciate this power-pop tour de force. I thought Roxette was a one-hit-wonder but somehow I surfed into this CD a few weeks back and I noticed that even a used copy cost more than most CDs do when they are new. Then I read the rave reviews and listened to the sound samples and decided to pony up the big bucks and buy this disc.

Boy am I glad I did! This CD is quite literally worth its weight in gold to me. It must be one of the great power-pop albums of all time. To me, this represents the culmination of Roxette's approach to music much the same way Pet Sounds represents the culmination of the Beach Boys' approach. And, like Pet Sounds, when I start listening to this CD it's
very difficult to stop without listening to the end. I wouldn't call this a "concept" album per se, but it is well paced and balanced between serveral styles all in the greater genre called "power pop".

This album really has it all. You've got the hard driving dance-pop sounds of Crush On You and 7 Twenty 7, both of which I didn't want to like but I finally gave in and admitted to myself that they rocked. If you like power ballads, this album has Roxette doing what they do best (in my opinion it's the 70's style power ballad style where Roxette really stands out) in Wish I Could Fly, Anyone, Salavation, and the more subdued and gorgeous I Was So Lucky.

Then there's the wonderfully catchy Waiting for The Rain which is the kind of song you'd hear played on the radio every hour back in the 60's. And, I really grew to like the quirky euro-pop Stars. It sounds like something Abba would have done. And there's more! There's not a single throwaway track on this album.

The greatness of Roxette, in my opinion, is that they sound just like most of the music I've listened to over the past thirty years or so, only just a bit better. Most every song on this album reminds me of something I've heard and enjoyed before, but Roxette does it all just a little bit more thoughtfully and professionally than most everyone else. They've got a sound that is very polished and yet fun and spontaneous at the same time. Marie Fredriksson is definitely a superior rock vocalist who really makes you believe that she believes what she's singing. Their lyrics are just a bit more clever than most lyrics you find in this type of music. At first I found it annoying when Per Gessle took the lead vocal, as I'm partial to female vocalists, but his sound grew on me as I listened to this album.

This album sounds like it was a real labor of love, and as the song says, "I Was So Lucky" that I surfed into it."

"There's a place for this stuff. It's definitely not for when you're intent on running for office and changing the world; it's for when the sun is shining and you just want to smile and forget for the moment how much the people you've elected are Not Helping.

Marie and Per are very good at granting such a wish. They rank right up there with both Andy and Vince and Neil and Chris in the realm of the great Europop duos, and this is probably their finest outing.

It has been suggested to me that my credibility as a musicologist has been somewhat diminished by the fact that I regard "7 Twenty 7" as one of the great songs of all time. So be it. The joy that these shameless purveyors of pop pageantry are capable of bringing in the space of three or four minutes is undeniable."
